The specimen up for sale is 835 g shrapnel. The surface exposed in situ shows a wind-polished desert varnish, while the opposite contact surface exhibits a thin coating of melted target rock. The meteorite is pictured on p. 111 of the book „Henbury Craters and Meteorites“ by Buhl & Mc Coll as an example of a crater forming meteorite shrapnel coated with impact melt from the target rock.
